The advantages are many...
- Data in a single location reduces redundancy
- Easier maintenance (backing up a single database vs. multiple files
- Security standards for data access can be established and enforced
- A DBMS is better suited to managing large numbers of concurrent users.
- Higher cost with respect to aquiring and maintaining
- Adds complexity, escpecially in smaller projects
By no means is this a complete list...

Subject: [mapguide-users] Advantages of storing spatial data in SQL
What are the advantages of storing Mapguide spatial data in Oracle or
SQL instead of the native storage on the file system ? I was looking at
it from the perspective of stability, digitizing functionality and day
to day management of data.
